David Ospina: Goalkeeper has lost his place to Petr Cech

David Ospina could be set for a move to Besiktas after the Turkish club confirmed their interest in the Arsenal goalkeeper.

Columbia international Opsina has struggled for first-team football this season following the arrival of Petr Cech from Chelsea in the summer.

A move to Turkey broke down in the summer but that appears unlikely to stop Besiktas from trying to capture the 27-year-old in January.

“We are interested in Ospina,” said vice-president Ahmet Nur Cebi.

“Him and goalkeepers of his calibre, but just because we want him does not mean he will come. We have to agree with his club and take his contract into consideration.”

The former Nice stopper has not appeared for the Gunners since September – when he made a costly mistake in the 3-2 defeat to Olympiacos in the Champions League.
